For today's cookie recipe, and some phenomenally gorgeous pictures, check out Piggy's Cooking Journal. This cookie would be a scene stealer on a Christmas cookie platter.
Notes: I made three version of the cookie, cinnamon-sugar pecan, chocolate pecan, and orange marmalade and cranberry. The cranberry orange was the best in my opinon. Since the tender cream cheese dough has no sugar, sweeter fillings bring a better balance. Dorie's version called for currants, cinnamon sugar, nuts and jam-all together. For my fellow penny pinchers, the estimated cost for this one is $5.00 for about 32 cookies.
